USA vs. Chile, April 7-9
 
Looks like Andre has made himself available for the USA's Davis Cup tie against Chile in April. That should prove interesting!

Wonder what PMac will do? Anyone going to this tie in Mission Hills, CA? We're trying, but not sure yet if we'll be going. Got our fingers crossed...would love to be there to cheer Bob and Mike on against Gonzalez/Massu! Also, it's on grass! How cool is that? Then, if Andre plays?! Man, this just keeps getting better and better.

That's awesome! I'd love to see Andre back on the DC team! I would go if I could. Should be an awesome tie to watch. Tough one, but really good tennis I think

Yeah, it'll be a tough tie for sure. Gonzalez/Massu are an excellant doubles team and great singles players too. I think the grass will be a huge advantage for us, but they're still dangerous. I've never watched a grass court match, so I really really want to go. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens...

By the way, hey Tinne! :D Since our board has been down, I've started stopping by here more often!

Hi there Amber & Tinne :wavey: ;) Gosh, I haven't been on here for ages...

If I lived in the US I'd definitely go. Now that I've been to DC I wanna go over and over again :D

It will be interesting to see how well the Bryans will do. Normally the U.S. Team just figures they will win the Doubles, but Chile has put together a good Doubles team.
Unlike some other countries when it comes to Doubles they just seem to throw a couple of guys together :rolleyes:

I think there are very few of the top countries that are contending for the DC Title who just throw two guys together.

The USA used to do just that before PMac woke up and smelled the coffee! ;) But yeah, I'd have to agree that most DC teams don't have an established doubles team. Gonzalez/Massu are a great baselining doubles team and baseliners can give Bob and Mike trouble because it's such a different style of play than they are used to. However, I think grass gives us an advantage. They only made it to the R32 in Wimbledon as a team last year. We'll see, but it sure will be fun to watch! :)

Yep, which is why the US didn't contend for the DC Title then ;)

It'll be hard to say what will happen - the Chileans arguably overperform when they're playing for their country, but the Bryans take DC very very seriously.... being in So Cal again and stuff, plus the fact that they lost to these guys at the Olympics, I think they'll do everything in their power to win.

Hey yourself! How was your trip to the mountains? Not too cold I hope :) Yeah, I hate it that our board is down... I miss our cute emoticons ;)

And hey Heike! Seems like it's been a long time. I need to email you about Düsseldorf yet... do you have tickets already?

Well, maybe the Chileans will play their hearts out because it's for their country. But on the other hand, I've never seen the US team do anything less. They show heart in every tie they play. Look at Andy against Romania. Throwing up on court, but not throwing in the towel. I felt so sorry for him, poor guy.
Playing on grass, I give the US a big change to go through. Like it was said before, you'll never see Gonzales or Massu get very far in a grass tournament, not at Wimbledon, but not at the smaller ones either.

Yep, definitely :D I was at the La Jolla tie and was quite proud :) Well, Gonzo did make the QF at Wimby last year and Gave Fed a pretty good match, but I know what you mean. And I agree :) We should be favored but it's DC so the team can't take them lightly even though it's at home and on grass. Based on the amount of Chilean fans I saw at Massu's first round match in Indian Wells, there might be more (and more LOUDER) Chilean fans at the tie than Americans, and that's disconcerting :lol:
